VI TRANSATLANTIC CONFERENCE AT BROWN UNIVERSITY / Call for papers

VI TRANSATLANTIC CONFERENCE AT BROWN UNIVERSITY

(Dedicated to Ruth J. Simmons)

April 10-14th, 2012

Transatlantic Poetics

(Towar d a Cr oss-Cultur al Syntax)

The Transatlantic Project at Brown University welcomes abstracts on
cultural practices that configure an Atlantic syntax. Topics include:
contacts, negotiations, re-appropriations; new formats and artifacts;
practices of exchange, production, and circulation; as well as translation
and transatlantic triangulations. This poetics in progress opens spaces
of articulation and debate between Europe, the United States, and Latin
America. The conference is especially interested in, but not limited to,
papers on Africa in Cuba; the international detective novel; and Spanish
between regional and native languages. Other transatlantic issues (from
cross-cultural theory to technologies and material culture) and readings
(from the international Modernism to the XXI Century arts and literature)
are also welcome.

Special sessions will be dedicated to Enrique Vila-Matas (Spain),
Leonardo Padura (Cuba), and Alberto Fuguet (Chile).

We will honor the work of Milagros Ezquerro, Darío Villanueva and
Sylvia Molloy.
